Financial Ombudsman Service

Our aim is to resolve your complaint internally. However If you remain dissatisfied after receiving our final response, or if eight weeks have passed since you first brought your complaint to our attention, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service [FOS]. You must contact them within six months of the date of any final response issued.
You can contact them at:

Financial Ombudsman Service,
Exchange Tower,
E14 9SR

Alternatively you can contact them via:

Tel: 0800 023 4567 or 0330 123 9123; or

Please note that if you do not refer your complaint within six months, the Ombudsman will not have our permission to consider your complaint and so will only be able to do so in very limited circumstances. For example, if the Ombudsman believes that the delay was a result of exceptional circumstances.
